Of the 9 that are in the palm section. Only 1 is alive. There is also one at the entrance up against the wall that is doing the best.

These pictures are hard to look at. I have never seen Trachycarpus look so bad, or Med fans straight up defoliated like that. At first I thought they were Cycas stumps. Hopefully all those Filifera's are pushing at least some new growth by June 1st. Their size and trunk girth may have protected the inner bud, which is just taking it's time to re-emerge on some. If they don't pull through they will be a nightmare to remove at that size.

I know there is some mixed opinions but I’d rather see all that dead foliage lopped off tighter instead of an appetizer for fungus and bugs.

Negligence! 

Those palms could have survived with a proper protection.  Plants are their business!

I'm not kidding but I was scrolling though the pictures on my phone when I came to the one of the owl.  When I saw those two eyes looking at me, that scared the crap out of me LOL.

So I have a question, one of my Ash trees only leaved out about half way after the freeze, like some of these photos.  The other one leaved out about 3/4 or 4/5 of the way.  The rest is just "dead" branches, or branches without any leaves on them.  Before the freeze they had fully leafed out, and the freeze of course killed all the buds and leaves.  Will it ever recover?  Or were these branches killed.  It seems it's all the exterior branches that don't have leaves on them.  The ones closest to the trunk have the most leaves.

Deciduous trees that look like the ones at the arboretum are going to be removed. They are going to have lots of falling limbs and will never be the same. A small tree you may be able to reshape it and start new leaders.

Those were some of the largest trees, and they had the worst damage. Sad they were dedicated to people.

So I am going to have to trim off these branches eventually, I guess.  They are relatively young trees, maybe 15 years old or so.

My Mexican Olive is still developing leaves outward.   Since Mexican Olives are small, I can visualize the progress fairly easily.  Almost all growth on this tree is from latent buds and not dormant buds.  One problem that is still ongoing, are those caterpillars which are devouring new foliage on trees. 

I would probably just wait.

It's kind of weird for a place that practically needs plant inventory wouldn't protect their palms as if these trees are disposable and now they have to start from scratch on most of them :mellow2:

I'm glad they were patient and are allowing them to recover  if possible .
